Ooak Tissavel Baby Black Bear Cub Soft Sculpture~by Artist Melisa Melisa's Bears For Sale
Welcome to Melisa's Bears
...is pleased to introduce a sweetly realistic 16” Black Bear Cub...
~*~ on a 7 day listing ~*~
I'm very excited to introduce my newest black bear cub. His name is Armel which is a French name that means “bear chief”. I love how he turned out and I hope you do to!
Armel is 16” tall and can be posed standing up (with something to lean on), on all fours, sitting, and more!
It was very enjoyable to create and photograph this baby black bear. I would have loved to take more photos, but ran out of time for his sale.
Armel is a one of a kind artist bear cub completely designed and hand sewn (no machine sewing) by me, Melisa Nichols. He is very detailed and as such he is his own unique individual and can not be duplicated ~ a true one of a kind. Many, many hours went into this baby!
Because of all this detailed work, I will never be able to create another baby just like Armel. I do not work with patterns - just from photos and drawings, so there is no pattern he can be remade from.
Armel is made from gorgeous Tissavel synthetic fur. It is very soft and realistic!
Armel's sweet baby face is full of detail. His face has been thread sculpted, scissor sculpted and hand shaded. He has soulful black glass eyes. He also has moveable eyelids so he can be posed wide awake, sleepy, or fast asleep. I created an adorable and realistic epoxy clay nose for him which I've hand painted and sealed in realistic baby bear colours. Because of all this detailed work, I will never be able to create another bear cub just like Armel.
Armel's leather paws are thread sculpted and hand shaded. I hand sculpted and carved epoxy clay claws for him which have been hand painted and sealed.
Armel is completely hand sewn and filled with polyfil, pellets (in his tummy), and an extra portion of cuddles. I have left the area around his neck loosely stuffed to allow for freer head movement. He is fully armatured for lots of fun poses!
If you have any questions or comments about Armel, please email me me... I'd love to hear from you! If you'd like to be on my mailing list, please let me know – I send out an email whenever I have a new creation ready for .
I hope you've enjoyed seeing all of Armel's pictures. Thank you for visiting his sale!
Armel will arrive in a special box with hang tags that include his birth date, a picture of him and a signed Certificate of Authenticity. He is a collectable baby bear cub made for display only - not suitable for children due to small parts.
Thank you to everyone who views and collects my soft sculptures! You've made every sale such a fun & enjoyable experience and I truly appreciate your appreciation and support!
